a rush last Saturday morning. W. O. Jones, G B. Frank
forter and C. G. McMillan were selected as judges. The
freshmen were to hold the cane in an open field and the
sophomores to rush upon them and try to take it away. At
the end of fifteen minutes the cane belonged to the class that
had the most hands on it. If a man of either class struck a
blow or made a foul the judges could count a hand for the
other class, or call time, at their discretion. The classes as
sembled on the grounds; the preps and upper classmen
seized cudgels of stove-wood to keep the crowd back; and
all things were made ready for the fray. Each class sings
its motto in Latin and Sanskrit; the service of Mars is in
voked by both; and they await the signal. It sounds they
rush, they grapple, tug, wrestle, jerk and climb oercnc an
other in great confusion. About the cane there is a surging,
struggling mass of muscles, while here and there they arc
paired off, wrestling and rolling on the turf. The little
"fresh" cares not if he is thrown so long as he can keep a
bigger soph" away from the cane. When the fifteen min
utes were up the judges called time and found six freshman
and seven sophomore hands on the cane. The result was
nearer a tic than was expected, as the freshman took a very
loose position and were outnumbered by some six or eight
men. Nobody was hurt, though many were completely ex.
hausted . Some noses bled, some shirts were torn, but in a
few days it is probable all will be recovered. Clark, Wiggen
horn and other members of the class of '87 were on the ground
to watch this, our second cane rush, and sec if '91 would win
the, day as the frcshics did four years ago.

W. W. Roliertson made up his mind that he would a little
rather not be connected with this sheet under the present
management and hereafter will allow some one else to set up
the paper and fire visitors.
Some European fellow has counted up all the bullets shot
during the Franco-German war and comparing with the num
ber killed asserts that one bullet in a thousand ended a life.
If this be true, 10,000 bullets shot by the U. C. would be
about as dangerous as the tail of a comet.
We are in receipt of a copy of the Santa Ana (Cal.) Daily
Blade which contains a column and a half description of the
Chase-Edwards wedding. It is described as the most brilliant
affair which ever took place in Santa Ana. From the de
scription the floral decorations, music and toilets of the guests
must have been of the most splendid order. Of the wedding
gifts it is said that, "no such array of solid silver and expe 1
sivc articles of vcrtu has ever been seen in southern Califor
nia." The groom, Clement C. Chase, of Omaha, will be re
membered as an old time student who even then gave
promise of a splendid career. The bride. Miss Lulu Ed
wards, was oneof the belles of Sant Ana. The best wishes
of the HESrKiUAN go with them and we hope their wedded
life may continue as prosperously as it has begun.
A SKNIOR'S VIEWS ON .
I'll write for him,
I'll fight for him,
I'll study all the night for him.
I'll smoke for him,
I'll joke for him,
My "Pol. Econ." I'll soak for him.
I'll flunk for him,
Get drunk for him,
And even pawn my trunk for him.
I'll read for him,
I'll bleed for him,
And even ride his steed for him.
I'll cry for him,
I'll lie for him,
1,11 very nearly die for him.
I'll wait for him,
Debate for him,
But hanged if I'll orate for hip).
